Focusrite 2i2 overview

  • 1Description

Focusrite's second-generation Scarlett 2i2 is a portable audio interface designed specifically for use in a portable computer environment. Lightweight at 1.3 lb, the device sports two inputs, two outputs, instrument/line switches, 48V Phantom power, direct monitoring, a discrete headphone output, and the ability to draw power via USB. It's designed to operate handily at resolutions and sample rates of up to 24-bit/192 kHz, and its combination front-panel inputs render it suitable for tracking instruments with much in the way of headroom and little in the way of distortion.

In addition to its two balanced monitor outputs, the Scarlett 2i2 offers a volume-controllable headphone output on the front. Metal gain controls and a red metal chassis provide a durable construction which can be taken on the road. The 2i2 provides a round-trip latency as low as 2.74 ms at 96 kHz, allowing you to record and monitor processed sound sources in real time.

An included Pro Tools | First Focusrite Creative pack is enhanced by a suite of Focusrite Scarlett plug-ins, a set of tools that includes compression, EQ, gating, and reverb. The Novation Bass Station software synthesizer can be used to add bass or melody, and a sample pack from Loopmasters contains drum loops and sound effects. Ableton Live is included to boot. Focusrite's Red Plug-In Suite (AAX, Audio Units, and VST) delivers modules based on the classic Focusrite Red 2 EQ and Red 3 Compressor hardware. Also included in this bundle is the Softube Time and Tone Pack for further sonic exploration within your chosen DAW.

    Focusrite 2i2 reviews

    Scarlett 2i2 USB Audio Interface (2nd Generation) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple to use, great sounding audio interface! IMO the one of the best things about this audio interface is its ease of use. On a Mac, it's plug and play using the built in core audio driver. The sound is detailed, clean and hiss free and the pre-amps sound great either with a mic or a guitar/bass direct in. But my favorite thing about this unit is everything is operated by real knobs and switches. No software virtual mixer needed. No one knob that controls 20 different functions. And the round trip latency (7ms on my 2012 MacBook Pro) is low enough that I don't even bother with the direct monitor switch. Probably the best thing I can say about the 2i2 is I can focus on making music and not on troubleshooting why it doesn't work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, sounds clean. Will be purchasing another. I own a video and media production company and purchased the Scarlett for voiceover work on podcasts I produce for corporate clients. The unit worked perfectly out of the box and has good clean mic preamps. I use it with the Heil PR-40 mic and the clarity is perfect. Just make sure to plug it directly into a USB port on your computer. It doesn't work through a USB hub. Other than that I am very happy with it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great recording interface with one flaw... The Scarlet 212 is a high quality interface that delivers excellent audio quality, and it seems to work flawlessly with my mac. There is one caveat: direct monitoring (through headphones) is MONO, not stereo as suggested in Focusrite's documentation. For me this is an issue as my signal chain is in stereo: electric guitar/bass > Adrenalinn III (amp modeling, stereo effects, drum machine) > TC Electric Flashback (stereo delay) > Scarlett 212 > DAW (Ableton Live/Adobe Audition).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Interface I'm using this in a Wirecast live streaming setup on a Lenovo laptop capturing an audio feed from the house mixer. Setup was easy and it works fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be simpler. Used to power a condenser mic. The configuration setup is simple and the function of the various knobs, buttons, and lights are easy to understand.
